DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
Hereinafter, a display apparatus including a touch electrode according to embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.
On explanation about the embodiments of the present invention, if it is mentioned that a first element is positioned “on or above” a second structure, it should be understood that the first and second elements may be brought into contact with each other, or a third element may be interposed between the first and second elements.
According to a method for controlling an alignment of liquid crystal layer, a display apparatus may have various modes, for example, Twisted Nematic (TN) mode, Vertical Alignment (VA) mode, In-Plane Switching (IPS) mode, Fringe Field Switching (FFS) mode, and etc.
Among the above modes, in case of the IPS mode and the FFS mode, both a pixel electrode (pixel ITO) and a common electrode (Vcom) are formed on a lower substrate, whereby liquid crystal molecules included in a liquid crystal layer are aligned by an electric field between the pixel electrode and the common electrode. Thus, the IPS mode and the FFS mode may correspond to a method using an In-Plane Switching type electric field.
A display apparatus including a touch electrode according to embodiments of the present invention may be applied to a liquid crystal display (LCD) device including a pixel electrode on a lower substrate, and a common electrode on an upper substrate, as shown in the TN mode and VA mode.
Also, a display apparatus including a touch electrode according to embodiments of the present invention may be applied to an in-cell touch type LCD device which senses a user's touch by patterning a common electrode.
Hereinafter, a display apparatus according to the first embodiment of the present invention will be described as follows.
FIG. 2 illustrates a display apparatus according to the first embodiment of the present invention.
As shown in FIG. 2, the display apparatus according to the first embodiment of the present invention may include a timing controller 110, a gate driver 120, a data driver 130, a touch driver 140, a display panel 150, a touch driving electrode 160, and a touch sensing electrode 170.
The timing controller 110 drives one frame period by a time-division method so that a displaying driving mode for displaying an image on the display panel 150 and a touch sensing mode for sensing a user's touch are alternately driven for one frame period.
For the displaying driving mode, the timing controller 110 aligns an externally-provided video signal, converts the aligned video signal into digital video data (R, G, B) in a unit of frame, and supplies the digital video data (R, G, B) to the data driver 130.
For the displaying driving mode, the timing controller 110 generates a gate control signal (GCS) for controlling the gate driver 120 and a data control signal (DCS) for controlling the data driver 130 by the use of externally-provided vertical synchronous signal (Vsync), horizontal synchronous signal (Hsync), and clock signal (CLK).
The generated gate control signal (GCS) is supplied to the gate driver 120, and the generated data control signal (DCS) is supplied to the data driver 130.
The data control signal (DCS) may include a source start pulse (SSP), a source sampling clock (SSC), a source output enable (SOE), and a polarity control signal (POL).
The gate control signal (GCS) may include a gate start pulse (GSP), a gate shift clock (GSC), and a gate output enable (GOE).
The timing controller 110 drives one frame period by the time-division method so that the displaying driving mode (hereinafter, referred to as ‘display mode, DM’) for displaying an image on the display panel 150 and the touch sensing mode (hereinafter, referred to as ‘touch mode, TM’) for sensing a user's touch are alternately driven for one frame period.
The display mode (DM) is a mode for displaying a desired image on the display panel 150, and the touch mode (TM) is a mode for sensing a location touched by a user on the display panel 150.
A maintenance time of the touch mode (TM) is relatively shorter than a maintenance time of the display mode (DM). That is, the touch mode (TM) is driven for a short time period between each of the display modes (DM), whereby there is no influence on picture quality of the image displayed on the display panel 150. According to one embodiment of the present invention, the maintenance time of the touch mode (TM) is about 1/10, 1/40 or less in comparison to the maintenance time of the display mode (DM).
The gate driver 120 turns on a switching device connected with a gate line to be displayed with an image for the display mode (DM). According to one embodiment of the present invention, the gate driver 120 receives a signal from the timing controller 110, and applies a gate high voltage (VGH) to the gate line, to thereby turn on the switching device.
When the switching device connected with the gate line is turned-on, the data driver 130 outputs display data to a data line. In this case, the display data may be a grayscale value with grayscale information to display an image.
The touch driver 140 is connected with a touch sensing line and a touch driving line. The touch driver 140 applies a touch driving signal to the touch driving electrode 160, and senses a capacitance change in accordance with a user's touch from the touch sensing electrode 170.

For the display mode (DM), the common electrode 240 together with the pixel electrode forms an electric field, to thereby display an image. For the touch mode (TM), the common electrode 240 senses the capacitance change in accordance with a user's touch.
The common electrode 240 may include the touch sensing electrode 170 (RX) which is formed by patterning the common electrode 240 in a column direction so as to sense the capacitance change in accordance with a user's touch; and the touch driving electrode 160 (TX) which is formed by patterning the common electrode 240 in column and row directions, positioned between each of the touch sensing electrodes 170, and applied with the touch driving signal for sensing a user's touch.

Hereinafter, a display apparatus according to the third embodiment of the present invention will be described as follows.
FIG. 8 illustrates a display apparatus according to the third embodiment of the present invention.
As shown in FIG. 8, the display apparatus according to the third embodiment of the present invention may include a timing controller 110, a gate driver 120, a data driver 130, a touch driver 140, a display panel 150, and a touch sensing block 180.
The timing controller 110 drives one frame period by a time-division method so that a displaying driving mode for displaying an image on the display panel 150 and a touch sensing mode for sensing a user's touch are alternately driven for one frame period.
For the displaying driving mode, the timing controller 110 aligns an externally-provided video signal, converts the aligned video signal into digital video data (R, G, B) in a unit of frame, and supplies the digital video data (R, G, B) to the data driver 130.
For the displaying driving mode, the timing controller 110 generates a gate control signal (GCS) for controlling the gate driver 120 and a data control signal (DCS) for controlling the data driver 130 by the use of externally-provided vertical synchronous signal (Vsync), horizontal synchronous signal (Hsync) and clock signal (CLK).
Then, the generated gate control signal (GCS) is supplied to the gate driver 120, and the generated data control signal (DCS) is supplied to the data driver 130.
In this case, the data control signal (DCS) may include a source start pulse (SSP), a source sampling clock (SSC), a source output enable (SOE), and a polarity control signal (POL).
The gate control signal (GCS) may include a gate start pulse (GSP), a gate shift clock (GSC), and a gate output enable (GOE).
The timing controller 110 drives one frame period by the time-division method so that the displaying driving mode (hereinafter, referred to as ‘display mode, DM’) for displaying an image on the display panel 150 and the touch sensing mode (hereinafter, referred to as ‘touch mode, TM’) for sensing a user's touch are alternately driven for one frame period.
The display mode (DM) is a mode for displaying a desired image on the display panel 150, and the touch mode (TM) is a mode for sensing a location touched by a user on the display panel 150.
According to one embodiment of the present invention, if forming the touch sensing blocks 180 of ‘n’ columns in the direction parallel to the gate line on the display panel 150, the timing controller 110 alternately drives the display mode (DM) and the touch mode (TM) to be repeated ‘n’ times so as to sense a user's touch from the touch sensing blocks 180 of all the columns during one frame.
That is, during one frame, the timing controller 110 drives the touch mode (TM1) and the display mode (DM1) in the touch sensing blocks 180 arranged in the first column, drives the touch mode (TM2) and the display mode (DM2) in the touch sensing blocks 180 arranged in the second column, drives the touch mode (TMn-1) and the display mode (DMn-1) in the touch sensing blocks 180 arranged in the n-1th column, and drives the touch mode (TMn) and the display mode (DMn) in the touch sensing blocks 180 arranged in the nth column, thereby controlling the time-division method.
According to one embodiment of the present invention, in case of TFT-LCD display device of XGA grade with 768 gate lines, a TFT turn-on time of the gate line is not more than 21 usec, and a time of one frame is 16.7 msec when it is refreshed at a speed of 60 frames per second. Thus, the touch mode (TM) and the display mode (DM) are alternately repeated in 16.7 msec cycle.
A maintenance time of the touch mode (TM) is relatively shorter than a maintenance time of the display mode (DM). That is, the touch mode (TM) is driven for a short time period between each of the display modes (DM), whereby there is no influence on picture quality of the image displayed on the display panel 150. According to one embodiment of the present invention, the maintenance time of the touch mode (TM) is about 1/10, 1/40 or less in comparison to the maintenance time of the display mode (DM).
The gate driver 120 turns on a switching device connected with a gate line to be displayed with an image for the display mode (DM). According to one embodiment of the present invention, the gate driver 120 receives a signal from the timing controller 110, and applies a gate high voltage (VGH) to the gate line, to thereby turn on the switching device.
When the switching device connected with the gate line is turned-on, the data driver 130 outputs display data to a data line. In this case, the display data may be a grayscale value with grayscale information to display an image.
The touch driver 140, which is connected with a touch wiring, senses a capacitance change in accordance with a user's touch from the touch sensing block 180, to thereby sense whether or not there is a user's touch, and to sense a touch location.
The display panel has the upper panel shown FIGS. 4 to 6. Thus, the detailed description to the display panel 150 is omitted.
The touch sensing block 180 is formed by patterning the common electrode 240 in column and row directions.
The touch wiring 260 extending from one end of the column direction of the touch sensing block 180 is connected with the touch driver 140.
According to the present invention, a parasitic capacitance is decreased between the common electrode and the gate line and between the common electrode and the data line, whereby a delay on touch sensing and displaying driving is decreased owing to the decreased parasitic capacitance, to thereby improve touch sensitivity.
Also, the touch wiring 260 for connection of the common electrode 240 patterned in an active area is formed in the upper substrate, to thereby improve an aperture ratio.
Also, the touch wiring 260 for connection of the patterned common electrode 240 is formed inside the upper substrate, so that it is possible to reduce a bezel in the panel side, thereby realizing slimness in the display apparatus.
It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications and variations can be made to embodiments of the present invention without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention. Thus, it is intended that the present invention covers the modifications and variations of this invention provided they come within the scope of the appended claims and their equivalents.
